Michael Werner Gallery, East Hampton is pleased to present Peter and Sally Saul, an exhibition of works on paper by Peter Saul and ceramic works by Sally Saul. Both artists specifically created and selected the mostly new works for this joint exhibition, where their work is shown together for the first time in many years.

Saul’s first extensive monograph was published by Rizzoli in Fall 2021.
